Tettey signs one-year contract extension

12 February 2020

Norwich City are delighted to confirm that midfielder Alexander Tettey has signed a one-year contract extension with the club.

Tettey is currently City’s longest-serving player, having joined the club in the summer of 2012. The Norwegian’s contract extension will see his deal run through to the summer of 2021.

After putting pen to paper on the new deal, Tettey told “It’s massive for me. It feels so good to be in Norwich and my family are happy. When my family is happy, I’m happy. I have been for many years since I’ve been here, so it’s nothing new to me, but it’s a very big and positive thing for me.

“I do give advice whenever it’s necessary, but you don’t want to be on the young players all the time because you have to give them some room to grow and learn themselves. All the senior guys do give advice.

“There have been a few ups and downs throughout my time, but Wembley was a standout moment [winning the play-off final in 2015], as was winning the Championship trophy in 2019. They were huge.”

Norwich City Head Coach Daniel Farke said: “We’re totally delighted and happy that Alex has committed himself to be a part of our group. It’s a great decision for both parties.

“Alex is a fully accepted leader in our group and a role model for our younger players, and the quality of his performances have been really important.”
